4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Mountainside campus fee. Walkable (15 minutes) to downtown Banff. Quiet rooms, not luxury but perfectly acceptable and restful, clean air and interesting people (many are arts delegates to the Banff Centre).,

This is a wonderful facility if you are there at a special function or meeting. As a family vacation, there might be a different choice that would suit your needs in town. On a business trip, I would not hesitate to stay here again.

I stayed one night in the Banff Center. The rooms are nice, spacious and modern. Registration takes a while since most people come with the shuttle bus from Calgary airport. Food is served in the nearby dining room, the top floor of a building overlooking the whole valey. Pretty amazing!

Had a great time there for a conference. Enjoyed the spectacular view of the mountains, friendly service including a late check-in, expressed checkout, a very well staffed and maintained recreation center, courteous servers at the dining room and state-of-the-art meeting facilities. Overall a great time for conference or leisure. Only downside is it's 2 hours away from the nearest airport

Beautiful campus in a unique setting with the finest views in Alberta. Rooms are straightforward, but large, quiet and with comfortable beds and very clean. No air conditioning is mitigated by screened windows. The campus offers complete recreational facilities, several dining options and vibrant arts programming. The property is divine; the most beautiful views in Banff!

We were pleasantly surprised by the very nice rooms, decor, comfy beds and pillows, friendly staff and fantastic restaurant choices at the Banff Center. Well done! This is a great choice for those who want to get "out of downtown" Banff. Just a short walk down the hill back to the heart of the town. I will definitely stay here... More

I attended a wedding at the Banff Centre and found out once I checked in the rooms had no air conditioning and only some of the rooms provided fans that barely worked. The front desk was lacking in the sense that they never let me know about any of the amenities offered. The grounds however were beautiful and well maintained.... More

It is my first time staying overnight at Banff and Banff centre is an awesome experience. The location is great, just around 20 mins walking from town. This was a lovely hiking trail with a great view.

Stunning setting framed by imposing rockies and lush green. The facilities are very good. Rooms are straight up, nothing fancy but w all you need, from clean carpets to comfy beds - but very simple. Restaurants on site are fine. Maclab bar is the star of the show, fab patio with gas table fireplaces where you can take in the... More
